Slavishly following UPOV 1991: A critique of Mozambique's PVP law

In this report, the ACB provides a critique of the Mozambique PVP law and concludes that the government of Mozambique has turned a blind eye to its small-scale farmers and their seed and farming systems. The provisions dealing with the exclusive rights granted to plant breeders and the exceptions to those rights render the centuries-old African farmers' practices of freely using, exchanging and selling seeds/propagating material illegal.
